The duo up front Kian Pennant and Chris Popov also knows how to score goals, both with 5 in 9 games allready. Pennant is also have England youth caps at U.18 level and Popov could be close to more Wales call up’s as the former Man Utd academy member looks very promising as well.
Ben Grist who allready had EFL experience with Grimsby Town before joining in the summer has also been on the field 9 times as he also looks to have settled in comfortably.
Lovely to also see that youngsters such as Sammy Braybrooke, Ben Nelson and Oli Ewing all youth internationals for England, Scotland and Wales, are pushing on and part of the U.23 set up and still in their late teens. It’s a good signal when players are getting a chance and can actually get into the first team frame at an early stage with that as a goal even for Brendan Rodgers.
Harvey Godsmark-Ford is not just a grand name but also a good footballer and one to watch as well in this very talented team of players getting a year older and with hopes of a great breakthrough and soon also possible loan objects for other EFL clubs and Belgian sister club Leuven.Embed from Getty Images
